The Parents Part

"Wait not till the little hands are at rest

Ere you fill them full of flowers;

Wait not for the crowning tuberose

To make sweet the last sad hours;

But while, in the busy household band,

Your darlings still need your guiding hand,

Oh fill their lives with sweetness.

"Remember the homes whence the light has fled.

Where the rose has faded away;

And the love that glows in youthful hearts,

Oh, cherish it while you may,

And make your home a garden of flowers,

Where joy shall bloom through childhood's hours,

And fill young lives with sweetness."

~Home-Making, By Rev. J.R. Miller, D.D. (1882)

Glorify God

I thought I would share the Bible lesson we are studying in our home education. I think this verse is a wonderful study, for all ages and sex. (but since I am female and am training mostly female- I will focus my thoughts around the woman;-) I would love to have ANY comments. ~xo~
1Corinthians 6 (King James Bible)
6:11...but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (19) Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? (20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

We listed together ways we can show glory to God through "our body and spirit". If these belong to God, and God in in us, can others tell? For my children the challenge is having a God spirit while playing with each other and doing task around the house. For me, the challenge is to show God even at times that I am frustrated and tired. (with children and husband- plus when dealing with people outside of my home!)
19-Know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, and not my own?
There are so many ways this can be applied. The foods we eat, the overall health of the body, how we dress, how we look.
Some think that it is silly to worry about the ingredient in our food and medicines. But if your body is a temple and God's temple at that, isn't it important what you but in it?
And how about how we dress and fix our hair and makeup? Shouldn't we dress in a way that God would be pleased by? Would we dress sexy (or sloppy) if God was coming for dinner? Would we put so much makeup on (which goes back to the ingredient topic, also) and how would we fix our hair, if it was God we were trying to please?
I think we should make ways to remind ourselves when we are getting dressed, that we are dresses God's temple. And when we are fixing meals,(or taking med.) that we are putting this for storage in God's temple. I know that I need to be reminded of this daily!
**and it doesn't stop there. How about what we are learning? What we are reading and listening to. If all these things are building a temple that is for God's use, than how strong are me making it? Is it really as harmful as we think?

Got the Flu Bug?

Our whole family passed around the nasty flu bug. Not fun! However one good thing did come from the week of sickness. In the middle of the night, with the youngest throwing up non-stop, I remembered my ACTIVATED CHARCOAL! (why I didn't think about using this before, I had no idea) As soon as I gave some, mixed in water, to the baby, he stopped throwing up. No kidding! I know that is worked! I highly urge everyone to get some. ( go the click on the powerhour mall and you will find out how to get some.)
How does this work? It absorbs the toxins that are making you sick and passes it out of the body. His game out in his diaper. (It wasn't too hard to clean out) The Charcoal powder has many other uses, and for all of you that are avoiding meds. I think this is a MUST for you to have. (And if worked way better than any med. we have ever taken before!)
I know that I will remember is when the next person gets sick around here!

Special Changes in our life.

Every now and then something comes along that changes your life forever. Marriage and children are pretty common, and Salvation from our loving Father, God Almighty is the most special. However, the change I am thinking of today is a "simpler" change.
I find it interesting to sort of review big changes in the beginning of a new year. I prefer to review new changes rather than plan changes to come. My reason? I have no idea the change God is going to send my way. The best changes that have happened in our family life has come from God alone. Our only part was acting on the info. He has sent our way.
So with a new year starting, it is time to review the changes that God has sent us, and note the effects on our life!
*being aware of the ingredients on our food (this has also carried over into skin care products and household products.) Wow! this change has been major! Quite a learning experience and has involved the whole family. Yes, your children can get very excited about eliminating toxic ingredients from the home. And the faces that you get from others when you 4 year old tells em that the cake they are feeding everyone to celebrate a loved ones birth has High Fructose Corn Syrup or Red 40! (they still eat the cake, but at least they are thinking about what is in it)( I will link some web sites on the side to learn more about some ingredients to avoid.)
*Coming to the understanding that our life is Gods. This one seems pretty simple, right? Well, it's a bit deeper than that. Many of us say that we gave our lives to God, but how much of it are we really willing to give? For us the new area of control has been our family size. Yes, I know and have heard ALL the arguments on why we are to control this area, but none seem to be found in the Bible, so from now on God is the one who will decide when we add another Blessing to our family. So much Peace has come from this decision!
*We are never too old to learn and change! So glad to know this! The path of learning we have found best, is self care and history. We believe that learning ways to help ourselves is God pleasing. We also love enjoyed learning the REAL history of America. (not what they taught us in government controlled schools, but what they didn't teach us!)
*Learning the ways feminist have poisoned our world. This study will lead to many other areas of improvement and a closer walk with God.

This is some topics off the top of my head. Each area leads to more than what is listed. God is amazing, and if we will just slow down long enough to hear Him speak to us and be willing to follow His lead, we will be changed forever.
I would love to hear changes that God has lead your family to. Feel free to link to your web page or leave a comment on Change from God.

food raid
I found this news article and think that others should hear about it. This is shocking!, to say the least. It is shameful what people with "power" and "high positions" are doing. And it is also shameful of us to ignore what is happening and turn a blind eye to it. I hope you will read the link, pray, and find a way to help fight against these evil doing.

For today,

I don't want much, Just to go the bathroom- ALONE! At least once. With nobody asking my a question. No one coming to me crying. No body wanting to eat! And not having to break-up any "disagreements" between siblings.
Now, that doesn't seem like to much to ask for. How do I get privacy? If I shut the door, everyone is knocking and baby crying. If I try to sneak off, they all start looking for me and yelling. Then, I answer, and it's all over, I have been found!
Enough of my rants for today. Any tips on mommy going to the bathroom while dealing with little ones would be helpful! ~Good Day!
